|Can each of us mentor a new hunter?|
By Kurt Krueger
CRITICISM from those who don’t have the experience to know better won’t keep me from being a cheerleader for Wisconsin’s mentored hunting program and other initiatives for recruiting new hunters.I hear people talking down the program that allows 10- and 11-year-olds without a hunter’s safety certificate to go afield with a mentor. Critics don’t give any credit to parents who know their kids best or to the strict rules, which specify the youngster be “at arm’s length” from their trained guardian and that only the child be allowed to have a weapon.
